    Ruskin's The Stones of Venice is not one work, but many. Justifiable claims have been made for it as a peculiar version of moral drama, a typological historical epic, a sacred legend, and even a kind of psychological travel book.(1) It has also been described as a very early kind of cultural history, and the anxiety which was felt in the s about whether it was, legitimate, history has. The Queen of the Air is about myth, but the real subject is the imagination, Ruskin’s own imaginative process which transformed the physical facts of the world into symbols. It is the operation of those three orders of truth discussed in Chapter 3 — the truth of natural fact, the truth of thought and the truth of symbol — but the third.

      John Ruskin, (born February 8, , London, England—died Janu , Coniston, Lancashire), English critic of art, architecture, and society who was a gifted painter, a distinctive prose stylist, and an important example of the Victorian Sage, or Prophet: a writer of polemical prose who seeks to cause widespread cultural and social change. In , Ruskin married Euphemia Gray, a beautiful young woman with social ambitions; the union, which apparently was never consummated, was annulled in , and Mrs. Ruskin subsequently married the painter John Everett Millais. From his position as the foremost English art critic, Ruskin in defended the work of the Pre-Raphaelite group.

    Ruskin’s medieval Venice is a virgin, writes Richard Ellman, and his Renaissance Venice a whore. 21 Even worse, the Renaissance Venice that displaces Santa Maria Formosa is the Medusa, whose hideousness and sexual impurity are linked: a “pestilence came and breathed upon her beauty, until it melted away.” 22 As men must look at the Medusa, we must look at the Renaissance—“it is well that Author: Katherine Eggert.   On his advice, Ruskin takes Effie up to Scotland with handsome young artist John Everett Millais (Tom Sturridge) in tow. Effie Gray is beautifully shot by cinematographer Andrew : Geoffrey Macnab.
